It is the offseason in the NBA which means that players have time to go out and do other things they have interest in.
For the Philadelphia 76ers, that means maybe even starring in a new basketball movie that is set to be filmed in the City of Brotherly Love.
Movie star Adam Sandler, an avid basketball fan, is filming a new movie titled “Hustle” and he hopped on “The Dan Patrick Show” to confirm that there will be a handful of Sixers in the movie. Players such as Tobias Harris, Seth Curry, Matisse Thybulle, Tyrese Maxey, as well as coach Doc Rivers will be in the film.
“Yesterday, I did a scene with Doc Rivers, and a bunch of the Sixers were in there,” Sandler said h/t The Philly Voice. “Tobias, Matisse, Seth Curry and Tyrese Maxey. It’s all nice guys.”
“Hustle” will be featured n Netflix and it should be another interesting Sandler movie surrounding the game of basketball after the success of “Uncut Gems”. A release date has not yet been set, but it is a movie that everybody should keep an eye on and Sixers fans should be excited about seeing their main guys in a big movie project.
